a member of the house can give us a reason to be optimistic. chris van hollen is a maryland democrat. there he is, congressman, do you believe we're going to go over this cliff, yes or no? >> i still think we have a 50/50 chance of averting the cliff. i thought the odds were a little higher this morning, but, look, obviously the clock is winding down. what we do know is negotiations are ongoing. there was a big road block earlier today with the so-called chain cpi issue, but that seems to have been put aside. so we'll have to see, but, again, the fundamental issue has been the same throughout this process which is that our republican colleagues are trying to do everything we can to prevent higher income individuals to pay a little bit more to reduce our deficit, and that's what's been going on for the last six months. that's what the conversation in the election was all about, but here we are. >> can you walk us through this? you said the chain cpi. i was told it was off the table. is it still on the table? >> earlier today i would have said the odds of an agreement was very low beca

van hollen of maryland spoke to ed schultz last night and discussed what democrats are willing to give up if speaker john boehner accepts ending tax breaks for people making more than $250,000 a year. >> what the president has said is we need $1.6 trillion as part of an overall deficit reduction plan, because if you don't get those additional revenues, but you also try and reduce the deficit, you end up whacking everybody else much harder. and so, it's really important to have that revenue number as high as possible. >> sure. >> look, the president's already been clear, ed. on cuts, he will continue to implement over the next ten years over $1 trillion in cuts that he agreed to as part of the budget control act, 100% cuts. and at the time, he said we've got to come back and do revenue. he "life & style weeklalso call billion in cuts and laid out exactly what those should be. >> catch "the ed show" here at 8:00 p.m. eastern on msnbc, the place for politics. >>> well, new jersey governor chris christie is making a personal plea for federal disaster aid in the wake of hurricane sandy. the
chris van hollen talked with our darren gersh, and began with an update on the status of the talks. >> well, the good news is that the president and the speaker of the house are now in face-to-face discussions. it's always better to be talking than not. the other development is that increasingly congressional republicans recognize that the position that they had staked out is unsustainable. >> one of the arguments we hear from some democrats is that the fiscal cliff isn't really a cliff, it's more like a slope and you could gradually go down it and the withholding from tax wouldn't kick in for a while and the spending cuts wouldn't hurt the economy for a while. do you think it is good idea to go over the deliver and it is more of a slope. >> no, i think would be a mistake to go over the fiscal cliff because it could set in motion lots of things that could be a drag on the economy. that being said, i think if it's clear that the parties were working toward a negotiation, that you could spill into january without doing any irreversible damage. >> one of the ideas that seems to now be

, shelly capito and greg meeks of new york. in the next hour, tom cole, tom price and chris van hollen. then at 8:00 a.m. eastern, senator ron johnson and bob corker. president obama issued a warning on "meet the press." >> on midnight, december 31st, if congress doesn't act, then everybody's taxes go up. and for the average family, that could mean a loss of $2,000 in income. for the entire economy, that means consumers have a lot less money to make purchases, which means businesses are going to have a lot less customers, which means that they're less likely to hire and the whole economy could slow down at a time when the economy is starting to pick up. >> but after it was all said and done, leaders on the senate floor couldn't get anything done, at least not yet. >> there's no single issue that remains an impossible sticking point. the sticking point appears to be a willingness and interest or frankly the courage to close the deal. i want everyone to know, i'm willing to get this done, but i need a dance partner. >> this morning, we've been trying to come up with some counteroffice to
. and chris van hollen, his communication with the executive branch, the president knows our views. he shares our values. we feel confident in any negotiation that he takes the lead in. >> there have been reports. are you disappointed so far? >> no, i am very happy about the discharge petition. it exceeded my expectations in the speed of which are members been here only a limited amount of time were to stand and sign the petition. the fact is getting people to sign, it is also about bringing pressure on the leadership to say why are you not bringing this to be for? this is a forever protection of the wealthiest in our country at the expense of the middle class. this decoupling is central to solving the fiscal challenge we have now, and do not wonder yourself? i never seen a poll says 100% over mummeries support middle- income. the senate has passed it. the president is poised to sign it. why would they block that except to protect the high end? >> it is an institutional question. did you have any issue with given authority over to the executive branch? >> my understanding of what he is talkin
chris van hollen who has said we democrats stipulated what we're willing to live with in medicare and that's putting something significant on the table. they did vote in favor of cuts they thought were too close to the bone and what the house democrats reverse to as their sort of wall, their bottom line. they wouldn't be willing to go much further. if the president goes beyond that, i think you would see folks crying foul. >> let's play what congressman tom cole said regarding what he believes is the feel amongst republicans in the house. let me play what he said. >> i think if it got to the floor it would carry. look. that's my judgment. i spent a lot of time counting votes and looking around. >> he was referring if something got to the floor regarding tax rate increase for top 2% but i want to play what congressman mccarthy of texas said. chuck todd pointed out this morning, he's the guy that does the counting behind the scenes and here's counter to what cole said in the latest interview or comments. >> the president want it is rates to go up. we don't want to be back here in an

not challenge boehner soon but it explains why he is watching his back. here's congressman chris van hollen yesterday. >> i'm getting increasingly concerned that one of of the reasons that i speaker i think is deciding to string out these discussions is that he wants to wait until january 3rd when the election for speaker takes place. >> an aide to boehner dismissed the assertion saying, quote, that's nutty. while president obama has the upper hand, it's not a blowout the bickering over the fiscal cliff has the country even more pessimistic about all of its leader and that's extends to the president. 69% are convinced next year will bring more of the same, a period of division and an inability to compromise. only 26% expect some version of unity. it's a dramatic change. four years ago, wake of obama's historic first election, 52% believed the parties would set aside their differences. not so much anymore. and just 40% are confident washington mututhe president has the right set of goals. while these are slightly better numbers for him since the election, they're much worse than when he ente
out a deal what are the chances the house will go along? you heard what chris van hollen said about an hour ago. >> note he said he thinks there are about two dozen republicans. you'll need closer to 40 republicans at least to push this over the 218 threshold. the problem with that is as tom cole the republican in oklahoma told me yesterday, he said, look. where are you going to find 40 republican house members who are willing to vote for something? if eric cantor and john bainer and kevin mccarthy don't like it, who is going to buck leadership and vote with democrats on something like this? he said, if there is at least lukewarm support from republican leaders you're likely to see more than 40 house republicans vote for it and it should pass pretty easily. then of course there is the question of are there democrats, perhaps the more liberal members of their caucus, who don't like this either? because you're going to essentially need every single democrat to vote for this and many who have said they don't like this deal. >> that would bring us to what our mike viqueira calls the ine
